Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack
I wasn't offended by it. Lawler is OK now and they wouldn't have done it without his say so. (at least I think so)
However, I am against doing it because it blurs the line between reality & storylines in a disturbing way. For example, while I was grossly offended by the "Eddie is in hell" bit they did with Orton heading into Mania 22 (which to me was far more tasteless than this), my biggest problem with it was that it was so over the line, that some fans were honest to God speculating that Eddie's death was an elaborate work.
And there in lies my problem. If you go too far with something like this, not only do you run the risk of offending people, but to me, it kind of takes away from the seriousness & severity of what actually happened and reduces it to just being another wrestling storyline.
EDIT: I actually missed the footage they showed of Lawler having the Heart Attack and having CPR performed on him. Thank God I did. Why on Earth would the WWE show that? That is just morbid, ghoulish, and weird.
